My first real hike and it was breath taking! An amazing work out with stunning views. We only came across one person, too, so it was very quiet. This hike seriously changed my life.

This is a great trail to see some bighorn sheep! We've almost always gotten some close encounters when we visit this area.
If you're looking for a true hike- I don't think this is it. It's a stone road that gets vehicles driving. The sights aside from the sheep aren't that great. Plus it's ALL sun so be prepared
